Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
